Carton Flow Rack
Carton flow is a form of shelving that uses gravity feed. Each unit consists of one or more inclined runways. Goods are loaded from the rear and retrieve from the front. The item directly behind it slides forward in place of the previous, creating a first in first out (FIFO) stock rotation. With carton flow rack systems, labour savings of up to 75% can be achieved immediately. Because items are picked from the front and stocked from the rear, both functions can be performed without interference.
